In an unprecedented move, the judge overseeing the Kyle Rittenhouse case has now banned MSNBC from the court room after agents of the network were discovered trying to follow the bus carrying members of the jury in what may have been an attempt to discover their identities.
As The Washington Examiner reports:
Judge Bruce Schroeder called the matter deeply disturbing and serious during a brief statement from the bench Thursday.
“I have instructed that no one from MSNBC News will be permitted in this building,” Schroeder said. “This is a very serious matter, and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is, but absolutely, it would go without much thinking that someone was following a jury bus … that is an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities.”
